Spotlight - Nancy Basket | A Natural State

Share to google classroom

Organic materials such as pine needles are considered "free for the taking" and have qualities that can not be reproduced by humans. But collecting natural materials comes at a price for the environment if people do not conserve natural resources. Nancy uses basket making as a way to teach respect for the natural world while creating awareness for cultural tradition. The basket making tradition reveals our dependence on natural resources and connects the artist to landscape.
